Ensuring Your Puppy Arrives Safely
Toy Puppies by Myra is located in beautiful and sunny Florida near Fort Lauderdale, but ships puppies to families across the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and South America. I currently reside in Davie, Florida but I am able to ship puppies safely and securely to their new homes. For the past 17 years, I have been shipping my puppies successfully and will provide all of the necessary paperwork and health records to ensure that your new pet arrives happy and healthy at their destination.
When it comes time to ship your new puppy, I provide a health certificate from their veterinarian and assist with U.S. Customs and Border Protection paperwork when shipping internationally. Most airlines, such as Delta, will run airfare for pets at about $200. Shipping availability depends on where your puppy will be shipped to and during what time of year; availability decreases during winter and cold springs. If you are adopting two new puppies, some airlines will allow you to ship them together for the same low cost.
Most people are worried that shipping pets via airlines is dangerous for the animals. I take great care to ensure that the dogs are comfortable and safe for the duration of their trips. Animals are generally flown in the cargo area, which will remain pressurized and at an average of 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. There will be water available for them as well as food, and they will be shipped in USDA-approved kennels adhering to all International Air Transport Association Live Animal Regulations. Ventilation will be provided for the puppies, and they will arrive for pickup in their new homes safe and healthy.
Flying with Your Puppy
In some circumstances, airlines will allow you to fly with the dog inside a small kennel as a carry-on item. The kennel must fit underneath the seat in front of you and the animal must demonstrate good behavior. Some owners may wish to pick up their puppy and fly with them to their new home. This may be a good option for those who are looking to meet their puppy prior to taking them home.
